Have you ever unboxed that shiny new refrigerator and never thought twice about the ‘Energy Star’ sticker you tear off the moment you start loading it full of goodies? Think again! Choosing an Energy Star Rated appliance is a great way to maintain long-term energy efficiency in your home.
Energy Star ratings are a type of rating that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to signify how efficient an appliance is. The higher the rating, the more energy-efficient the appliance is. An Energy Star appliance has been determined by the EPA to save money and protect the environment all while keeping your milk cold, your Sunday roast warm and your dishes clean.
An Energy Star appliance means you’re getting a product that’s been tested for efficiency by the EPA, which means you can rest assured that it will be more cost-effective to operate than other brands. This means that even if you don’t see a difference in your utility bills when you purchase one of these appliances, you will over time because they use less electricity than their competitors do—which means they’ll require fewer repairs or replacements due to wear and tear on parts inside them over time.
Energy Star appliances save money in several ways: firstly, they save energy which translates into lower utility bills; secondly, they use less water which saves money on water treatment costs; thirdly, they provide better performance over the long-run. It’s a win-win-win…WIN!
